Odd Name for a Company . . .
« on: July 25, 2008, 06:42:02 pm »

I wonder what they make?  ::-)

There is (or was) an optician in Brent Cross Torture Chamber called Ben Mirkin.

I used to be part of a crewing coop called Stagefright, and a lighting & sound design group called TSD, or Total Sensory Deprivation.
